I have suffered from dry skin and lips my entire life. My kids also have sensitive skin and require frequent moisturizing, especially after showers and in the winter months. As the weather gets colder, little lips and cheeks are sure to get chapped. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review Cheeky Salve from Babytime by Episencial in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.
Price and Design
The 0.5-ounce tub of Babytime by Episencial Cheeky Salve currently costs $7.55 on Amazon. A two-pack costs $7.55. The natural and organic balm for lips, cheeks, and nipples contains shea butter, safflower seed oil, sunflower oil, beeswax, grape seed oil, tocopherol, lactobacillus, and raspberry juice. Developed for babies from birth, the probiotic-enriched balm contains no petroleum products, fragrances, or harsh chemicals. Cheeky Salve is also gluten-free and clinically proven non-allergenic.
When I first opened my tub of Cheeky Salve from Babytime by Episencial, I immediately noticed the lack of fragrance. Although I like some scented products, I prefer to use unscented versions on my children when possible. I also appreciate that this balm has been allergy tested. I personally have sensitive skin and stick to non-allergenic products as much as possible. I also know a number of young children who struggle with severe allergies including wheat allergies, so I love knowing that Cheeky Salve is safer and gluten-free. The natural formula glides on smoothly to moisturize and calm irritated skin and lips.
As soon as I dipped my finger in my tub of Babytime by Episencial Cheeky Salve, I noted the super creamy texture. The oils, shea butter, and beeswax comes together to make a balm that glides on smoothly. I have been using my tub on my cheeks and lips. I also apply some to my children as needed. I always put lip balm on at bedtime, and my son loves when I put a little Cheeky Salve on his lips too. My daughter is as obsessed with lip balm as me, so she loves applying Cheeky Salve to her lips too. The natural balm is also great for sore or cracked nipples. I wish that I had had some when I first started breastfeeding almost five years ago! The balm also works great for slight redness in the diaper area.
If you are searching for a more natural skin balm for your baby or young child, I definitely recommend checking out Cheeky Salve from Babytime by Episencial. The balm contains shea butter, safflower seed oil, sunflower oil, beeswax, grape seed oil, tocopherol, lactobacillus, and raspberry juice without any petroleum products, fragrances, or harsh chemicals. The natural and organic formula glides on smoothly to moisturize and calm irritated skin and lips. I use mine as a lip balm for myself and my children. Cheeky Salve also calms irritated nipples, chapped skin, and minor diaper rash.
